Sunrise and Sunset...

I saw these two movies the other day,Before Sunrise (1995) and its sequel, Before Sunset(2004) ...
Both movies are critically acclaimed and were on my "to-be-seen" list for long...

And yes...Both movies are a MUST WATCH!
The story is simple...
Two strangers meet...and they talk...talk and talk!!!


What I liked abt the two movies is that while the first part deals with destined love...abt how two ppl met because it was just written somewhere for them to come accross each other and how they just click!
The sequel however...very convincingly contradicts the same....

I agree there is just too much "talk" in the movies and it might get a bit boring sometimes....actually...thats all that ther is to the the movies...endless conversation...

But the conversation between the two has a lot of depth...

Here are some of the quotes from both the movies which i just loved...
Do watch both movies if ya can get your hands on them...

"I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt. "

"Sometimes I dream about being a good father and a good husband. And sometimes it feels really close. But then other times it seems silly like it would ruin my whole life. And it's not just a fear of commitment or that I'm incapable of caring or loving because... I can. It's just that, if I'm totally honest with myself I think I'd rather die knowing that I was really good at something. That I had excelled in some way than that I'd just been in a nice, caring relationship."

"I know happy couples... but I think they lie to each other! "


"I don't know, I think that if I could just accept the fact that my life is supposed to be difficult. You know, that's what to be expected, then I might not get so pissed-off about it and I'll just be glad when something nice happens."

"You know what's the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you? Is when you remember how little you thought about the people you broke up with and you realize that is how little they're thinking of you. You know, you'd like to think you're both in all this pain but they're just like 'Hey, I'm glad you're gone'."


"Memory's are a wonderful thing if you don't have to deal with the past."


Jesse: You want to know why I wrote that stupid book?
Celine: Why?
Jesse: So that you might come to a reading in Paris and I could walk up to you and ask, "Where the fuck were you?"

Celine: You can never replace anyone because everyone is made up of such beautiful specific details.
